A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie begins with the newspaper in Chipping Cleghorn, The Gazette, printing a story about a murder. The odd thing is that the murder has yet to take place. Most of the people of Chipping Cleghorn believe that the announcement is merely an invitation for a game, and not an actual murder. The event is advertised to take place at Miss Blacklock’s home at half past six o’clock. Neighbors attend. The lights go out and they hear gunshots. When the place is illuminated, a bullet has grazed Miss Blacklock, and a man lies dead at her feet, a gun next to him on the floor. The neighbors realize the advertisement was not a game—the man really was killed. But was it murder? Or suicide? Maybe it was an accident.
